House in Blomfield road
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Section it off“Break a long room into sections by cleverly placing furniture,” says Charlotte Ford of Cotton Tree Interiors. “Console tables are really useful when placed at the back of a sofa,” she notes. “And if possible, get some floor-mounted sockets, so lamps can be put on them to bring in subtle lighting and create a soft divide.” She also advises looking at the size of your furniture. You can buy slimmer sofas and other scaled-down pieces that will fit well in the space.
Build a benchAdding a low built-in bench (or two) can be a great multi-tasking addition to any living room. A height of 45cm will work for both additional seating and perhaps a low-level home for the TV. You can also pack in useful storage below for logs or any other items you may wish to have to hand but out of sight in order to increase the sense of space.
1. It’s the most neutral neutralBecause grey is a mixture of black and white, with little or no specific colour undertone, it is the most neutral hue possible, meaning it can anchor absolutely any colour scheme.Notice how this room reads a strong presence of blue, even though only a few accessories actual show any colour. Grey makes colours pop (like vivid black) while feeling fresh and clean (like stark white), so you can play with pillow accents endlessly and never clash. Trends will come and go, but grey will always slip right into a new palette perfectly.
